Halvor Egner Granerud took his eighth World Cup win of the ski jumping season – and second of the weekend in Willingen – with another masterful display.
Poor weather conditions in Germany meant the second jump was cancelled, leaving Granerud to toast a tenth podium from 17 events after a 149-metre first-run jump.
That was comfortably the longest of the day and he won by 19.3 points from silver medallist Piotr Zyla.

Ski jumping: How far do they jump? How does scoring work?
The Polish athlete jumped 137 metres and finished just 2.1 points ahead of Germany’s Markus Eisenbichler, who completed the podium.
Granerud – who had not won a World Cup event before this season – tops the standings with 1206 points, 318 ahead of second-placed Eisenbichler.
The ski jumpers stay in Germany and go to Klingenthal for a double-header next weekend.
